Abstract

Architect and educator Marjan Colletti considers beauty in what he calls the ‘fourth Industrial Revolution’ – the post‐digital age. He begins with an ode to Beauty and continues in an autobiographical mode blending fact and personal experience. At points he evokes chimeras, myths and the South Tyrolean landscape; at others he describes aesthetic arousal in art and architecture as well as its power to scare – all in search of a personal beauty.
